International Women's Day with the Pink Saris!

For International Women's Day 2017, the Society of International Affairs screened the documentary "Gulabi Gang" by director Nishta Jain.

The screening was also the first for the new team in charge of events at UF Göteborg.

With an impressive turnout, the screening was a success.

The documentary being captivating, this reflected in the discussion which took place afterwards. The audience was curious in knowing what the Gang has been up to since the documentary's release in 2012. Furthermore, the issue over the Gang's influence in different structures was raised, but not only. The prevalence of corruption and fear in remote villages was discussed as well.

Finally, the difference of what "freedom" means for people in the West and in India was highlighted, especially throughout the issue of culture and of growing up in a certain cultural environment.

Next screening will take place on March 22nd at 5.30PM. The documentary chosen will be announced soon and will kick-off our focus on minorities!
